We would like to invite you to residency artist María Platero’s Artists walk and picnic!
On Monday, 30 July 2018. 5PM-6PM
We will meet at the entrance of the Environmental Art Park from where we will walk together to KulttuuriKauppila. The artist studio at the residence will be open for you to check out some of María’s ongoing projects. Later, we will enjoy a light picnic by the river.
María tend to focus her work on ordinary gestures and actions, sometimes even unimportant like walking.
In her last series of works she has been also interested in repetition, variation and the new possibilities that explore things with the movement.
During her residence in Ii, she is doing some research on the concept of displacement. Her purpose with this walk together is not just warm up for the picnic, but also to play with this concept. Variations and repetitions will be observed from this simple improvised choreography with which we will draw (with our bodies) an imaginary line over the path that she has been walking everyday to her studio in KultturiKauppila.
